Princess Eugenie, 30, wed seven-year boyfriend Jack Brooksbank on October 12, 2018 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Her wedding closely followed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s who got married four months before on May, 19 2018. But Eugenie has been criticised for her expensive wedding which cost “between £2million and £4million”, according to Thames Valley’s police and crime commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld as she is not a full-time working royal.

Speaking on Channel 5’s documentary ‘Beatrice and Eugenie: Pampered Princesses?’, narrator Glynis Barber said: “Eugenie already seemed to be an easy target in the press because of her parent’s reputations.

“But the excessive nature of the wedding opened her up to serious scrutiny.

“She was once again branded the pampered princess.”

Royal author Quinn added: “It was once again Eugenie trying to compete in glamour with Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

“This is someone who is an ordinary working person.”

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews “It kind of highlights this slightly problematic tight rope that both princess have to walk in that they are royal princesses but they’re not working members of the family.”

Just a few weeks before her second wedding anniversary, Eugenie announced she is pregnant.

The couple are likely to choose a private London hospital for the birth and bookmakers have already compiled a list of possible names for the infant – from Alice and Alexander to Victoria and Arthur.

But royal commentators Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito believe Eugenie will reject the Queen’s offer for a royal title.

Speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, Ms Fiorito said: “About the title for the baby, do we know if they’re going to give their title? HRH?”

Ms Bowie replied: “It doesn’t seem so. They’ve declined. The Queen offered Jack a title when they got married but he said no then.

“I feel like that trend is going to continue with the baby.

“The Queen could override it, they could change their mind. What do you think?”

Ms Fiorito added: “Princess Anne declined for Zara and Peter.

“I think the trend now is to give these kids some privacy and not have a title.

“The christening wouldn’t be as public. They wouldn’t have to disclose information.

“They don’t have to adhere to protocols when there’s no title.”
